About This Activity

Robots on the Space Station (STEM, grades 4 & 5) August 15-19 Astronauts on the International Space Station (ISS) use robot assistants called ROBONAUTS to help them install and repair machines. In this exciting camp, students will learn to build and program robots using LEGO® WeDo and littleBits® modules, then work in teams to create a ROBONAUT which has a special skill (such as hands that grip) that could someday help astronauts in space. This week of engineering includes training in radio transmission and reception, how to use radio language protocols and how to track and map satellites - including the ISS. Students will speak live, by Ham Radio, with an astronaut on the ISS, earning a card from NASA indicating they talked to an astronaut.
